. For practitioners, the findings illustrate that journalists need to employ thematic framing—presenting all of the factors that occur surrounding the violence, rather than just describing the incident in an episodic manner. Theoretically, we used the social ecological model (SEM) to qualitatively

Our current vehicle-friendly infrastructure needs to be modified to support increased active transportation and living. Ecological Model Interventions The

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the shared interest of the public health and parks and recreation sectors in promoting active visits to parks. At the institutional level, both sectors have missions to promote physical activity and view parks as key components in attaining physical activity goals. While some balancing among park goals may be necessary to avoid overuse and resource degradation, active visits more often complement park sustainability goals by reducing automobile and other motorized use impacts. The public health and parks and recreation sectors have each developed ecologic models to understand the determinants and outcomes of park-related physical activity. Transdisciplinary integration of these modeling efforts can lead to a better understanding of how active visits fit within the context of the overall recreational experience and the full range of benefits that parks provide. We conclude by identifying strategies for improving collaboration between the public health and parks and recreation sectors.

This article proposes a theory- and practice-based model for adapting physical activities. The ecological frame of reference includes Dynamic and Action System Theory, World Health Organization International Classification of Function and Disability, and Adaptation Theory. A systematic model is presented addressing (a) the task objective, (b) task criteria, (c) limitation and enablement criteria, (d) performance errors, and (e) adaptation suggestions. Four individual case examples are described, referring to the conceptual model and depicting its use in various settings of physical activity, including physical education, rehabilitation, competition, and recreation.

( Barnett et al., 2017 ). It appears that no study to date has examined potential mediators of the environment–physical activity association in older adults. In response to Spence and Lee’s ( 2003 ) call for the application of ecological models that include both moderation and mediation effects, and to

As a study-guiding framework, we used the social-ecological model ( McLeroy, Bibeau, Steckler, & Glanz, 1988 ). The social-ecological model considers the dynamic interplay between personal and environmental
